About

After studying anthropology, history and Hindi in Paris, Clémence Jullien did her PhD on reproductive healthcare in India at Université Paris Ouest Nanterre as well as at the Centre d’Etudes de l’Inde et de l’Asie du Sud (CEIAS/EHESS). In 2011-2012 she received a scolarship from the French Foreign Affair Ministry (grant MAEE) in order to do fieldwork in India and she became associated to the Centre for Social Sciences and humanities (CSH), in Delhi.

Drawing on 18 months of ethnographic fieldwork in a public hospital and several slums in Jaipur (Rajasthan), she shows how health  programmes  meant  to  secure  universal  access  to  care  paradoxically reinforce  existing social and religious stereotypes. Her thesis has been awarded by the prestigious „Prix Aguirre Basualdo. Prix solennel de la chancellerie de Paris“ in December 2017.

From August 2017, Clémence Jullien is a post-doctorate lecturer and researcher at the department of Social Anthropology and Cultural Studies (ISEK), in Zurich.

She aims at studying one of the main consequence of indian’s sex-ratio imbalance: bride shortage.
